Was wondering...



Was just wondering...
It is easy to pray and sing, "Lord, break our hearts for

what breaks Yours."
But, have we really felt the pain (emotional/physical) people go

through?
Have we taken time to see their silent tear?
Notice the sadness behind their smile?
Have we bent down to lift someone up?
Have we lit a candle for those in darkness and led them to light?
Have we guided someone who is confused?
Have we showed the way to the lost?
Do we know the difficult path some people walk?
Have we shared a meal with the hungry?

When we really see, listen and feel our prayers and words of
encouragement will be more sincere.

"Lord make us more sensitive, caring, loving and
compassionate to the hurting around us Make us more like You Lord

Jesus...."

Being Gentle...


We as God's children are to be 'gentle' and 'kind' too! We need to clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. "Gentleness" is a fruit of the Holy Spirit.
🌺 Galatians 5:22 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law."

🌺 Colossians 3:12
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
May God give us a "Gentle and a quite spirit"!
🌺 1 Peter 3:4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
May God help us pursue these things...
🌺 1 Timothy 6:11 "......pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness."
